Waterstones Says

From Paris to Shanghai, and from to Buenos Aires to Borneo, World Travel is a one-of-a-kind travel guide from the legendary chef and food writer, supplemented by a handful of essays from those who knew Bourdain best.

Anthony Bourdain saw more of the world than nearly anyone. His travels took him from his hometown of New York to a tribal longhouse in Borneo, from cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, Paris, and Shanghai to the stunning desert solitude of Oman’s Empty Quarter – and many places beyond.

In World Travel, a life of experience is collected into an entertaining, practical, fun and frank travel guide that gives readers an introduction to some of his favorite places – in his own words. Featuring essential advice on how to get there, what to eat, where to stay and, in some cases, what to avoid. Additionally, each chapter includes illustrations by Wesley Allsbrook.

Supplementing Bourdain’s words are a handful of essays by friends, colleagues, and family that tell even deeper stories about a place, including sardonic accounts of traveling with Bourdain by his brother, Chris; a guide to Chicago’s best cheap eats by legendary music producer Steve Albini, and more.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Witty and fascinating … a guide book that can't help but inspire – whether that's to set off on your own free-wheeling adventure across the globe or just to spend a weekend streaming Bourdain's favourite movies is left to the reader's discretion - independent.co.uk

Witty and anarchic - National Geographic

The late, great chef Anthony Bourdain travelled the world extensively in search of the best places to eat and, in this book, finished by his long-time assistant, Laurie Woolever, we can travel the world with him and discover his favourite dishes and restaurants, from cumin ribs in Shanghai to hot dogs in his native New Jersey. At a time when all we can do is armchair travel, this is a much-needed escape. His writing is funny, honest and evocative, and makes for an entertaining read you can dip in and out of, a country at a time, or devour all in one go - Olive

An exhilarating whirlwind tour.... Anyone who loved and misses Bourdain will want this book - Kirkus Reviews

There will never be anyone quite like Anthony Bourdain. But World Travel offers readers the potential to travel the world as he did - Fortune

It’s the World According to Tony – a browsable compendium of his matchless commentary on worthy destinations in 43 countries - People

Bourdain’s final book gives readers insider knowledge of his favorite global locales…. Fans of ‘Parts Unknown’ will want to add this to their spring reading lists - CNN

The late television host had dreams of creating a guidebook for all his favorite cities across the world, and his longtime assistant and collaborator took the notes from their singular brainstorming session and turned that dream into a reality - EW.COM

A collection of remembrances mixed in with a global travel guide, this collection of city-by-city tips and restaurant suggestions uses Anthony Bourdain's own words alongside Laurie Woolever's, making this a one-of-a-kind book honoring a one-of-a-kind soul - Good Morning America

“Brilliant”

Devastated by the loss of Tony Bourdain and his unique voice and passion for food! This was such a delight to read. Love his raw humour, the rock'n'roll, the easy charm.
